Norway: STEP Offshore Wins Mud Mixing Equipment Contract with STX Offshore & Shipbuilding

STEP Offshore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aker Solutions, has won a contract from South Korea’s STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co., LTD (“STX”) to supply equipment for a new, dynamically positioned ultra-deepwater Globetrotter-class drillship(image). The owner of the ship is Noble Corporation.

STEP Offshore will supply equipment for mud mixing, circulation and transfer, bulk storage and transport as well as an advanced control system, to ensure high performance and industry leading HSE standards. The contract value is undisclosed.

“We are very proud to be awarded this contract by STX”, says Pål Eriksen, President of STEP Offshore. “We look forward to working with STX on this second project. This once again proves we are the preferred partner for critical drilling fluid management applications.”

The ship will be built by STX at their state-of-the-art facility in Dalian, China, and then the unit will be transferred to the Netherlands for the installation and commissioning of the topside equipment.

STEP Offshore’s equipment will be delivered in the second half of 2011.
